Light's Out Final Serving: Dolce~

This day was just lalalalalalalaLOVE!~

although i'm writing this blog 4 days after the actual event, i guess it's fine. i mean, we're all still high about it, and i've somewhat calmed down to collect my thoughts properly. otherwise, you'll all be reading my epic rantings about... well, the yaoi con, in general :>

but i have to admit, that day must've been the best day of my whole entire life. and not to mention the roadtrip kuya andy and i took just to get there~ makati is such a huge and confusing place. plus i don't think i'm destined for that area because i rarely saw jeeps and tricycles, plus the MRT was too far away ._. 

so no, makati, you are not my destiny. 

anyway, although the venue was small, it was just perfect for around 120 people (give and take a few more) to actually fit in, roam around, and get cozy. there were tables selling the most gorgeous stuff (the green fujoshi shirt T_T i was eyeing that one the whole time but noooo~ they ran out of stock >>), trinkets here and there (see my blue star earrings? -- chie and i had to start squabbling like kids on that one) and all the other funny little things you'd probably have heard about but never saw (seme-uke shirt? yes plz).

and the bathroom~ can i say the bathroom was just like our secret base LOL

and the balcony was just awesome~ i felt like i was on top of the woooorld~

there were short talks too. and they were all just funny, and you couldn't help but smile and laugh along with everyone else. for example 

topic: why we read yaoi~
answer (1 of 3): for shits and giggles

topic: who usually reads yaoi~ 
answer(1 of many): girls from private catholic schools! (hoh yeah!!!)

topic: why do we act this way~
answer: no one knows why. it's still a mystery ._.

see what i mean? it was all so very interesting to know that some people actually get SENT to japan to study the fujoshi culture. or if not, i'd like to quote what one mod said -- 'i went to japan to learn how to read porn'.

(that seriously just made me laugh ;P)

the library was just super cozy~ and it had all the yaoi goodness piled up on the table~ yep, i can admit i've read most of them... maybe around 65% of those mangas i've already read :P so even if some were still in japanese, i could browse through the pictures again and again because i knew what they were saying anyway. uhuh, that's how addicted i am :P i dunno about the twins though -- they must've read all of em already LOL.

there were some fun stuffs to do too. i got tempted to do a tarot card reading (more on that on the next post because it's rather a long one and it has a certain place in my heart) and then there were cookies and sandwiches for lunch, ate amanda's booth was there too, there were film viewings, at least one quiz and we stalked the ate during komikon who said she'd be releasing a new comic during the yaoi con (another reason why we came). 

i even got to see ate camille after 3 years >M< WOOHOO!!! 

but maybe the highlight of the whole entire day was the butler cafe~ 

generally, i don't think it had anything to do with the yaoi, really. well, sure, if you think about the other butlers being in love with the others, then fine, i call quits. but in my opinion, since there were loads of girls during the event (majority really were fan girls, after all :P), why not add another generally well liked idea -- a cafe? 

i mean, ozine had this maid cafe :P (although i didn't have enough guts to actually enter it >>) and a whole lot of guys turned up for that one >> 

at the start, chie and i were eyeing this certain butler (ohoho >M<) but in the end, we wanted to take home kuya xid and ate seven (respectively cid and kune for those who don't know) because they were just hagfasfdjksbnd AWESOME. during the first few minutes, we were all awkward and all, but then when the games arrived, aun na~ we were just playing, and laughing and spending all those 5 peso coins chie and marik brought just for that occasion :P

what can i say? the 300 was worth it :P 

i stayed a bit longer because everyone else (meaning the gang) had to leave early~ so i stuck it out to watch antique bakery (korean ver.) alone (but not alone because there were still a lot of people) and then i ended up winning a raffle :P the yaoi manga should've gone to marik because they called her number first, but it ended up with me soooo~ it's mine >M< 

another bonus of going home late: 

feel good day much? you bet it was. so much that i want to repeat it all over again. HA! in my dreams~


April 22, 2010

my first pay envelope

(no pictures ._. forgot to bring my camera :<)

really~ yesterday was the first meeting i ever went to that had my tummy in knots and doing somersaults every few minutes -- i was even praying silently 'don't forsake me lord~ please~'

and i'm not over exaggerating anything >>

aside from yearbook meetings, i haven't gone to a meeting alone really :P maybe that factor scared me a lot -- i didn't have chie to depend on because she wasn't there and it wasn't a project we were working on together. yeah~

but despite my discomfort, the moment i stepped inside itallani's, miss b and miss aves were insisting we should eat first before discussing anything. and even while eating, they were just randomly advising me about things (college, stuffs, boys~ ganun). so by the time we actually started doing the modules, i was already at ease.

yep, i love them both <3 they're totally awesome people :tighthug: plus they love to laugh too :P

so yes, maybe there were still some things that i lacked in my work, and since mail failed us all (miss b wasn't able to receive the second part >> mails why are you so fail?!?) she had to read it on the spot :P hahahaha :>

in the end, i was able to receive my ever first pay envelope :> but i gave it to ma because really~ i've always wanted to do just that ;) (saw it in a commercial once, and asked around: ibinibigay ang unang sweldo sa magulang. palaging tandaan)


komikon 2010

because we pleaded like crazy, chie and i managed to go to this summer's komikon 2010 -- and yes, it WAS worth it :>

hahaha~ i had so much fun looking at all those indie comics that when we got home, chie and i suddenly thought of making one ourselves~

so now we're basically a team called 'inkbox' and we're still dragging people with us -- but more on that later :P

i can actually say that i liked komikon because of the crowd. maybe cosplay events really aren't for me after all: i get hassled just by looking at all those complicated looking things they're wearing. i mean, in anime, sure it looks pretty essential but in real life, it doesn't. more so if their props hit you ._. and they won't even say sorry :< that just bites.

so komikon is the one for me <3 you still see the creativity -- but it's on paper ;) so it's better :D (but that's just me)


i can't believe i didn't faint on the spot~ lalalalalalalala A DREAM COME TRUE! LIKE C'MON!!!

i think i now know how shani felt when she was able to see neil gaiman :P

stastruck much? I AGREE!!!

then chie and i had the spare time to actually eat something from The Chocolate Kiss cafe (which was on the second floor). they're cake's so YUMMY :< i want to eat there AGAIN ._.

i'll try to to persuade someone to bring me a slice home... oh, and their twining infused iced tea <3

we didn't see enni here yet because... well, maybe because we were at the front of the cafe and we didnt get to explore the rest of it. there were mo seats hidden at the back part, but we didn't go there anymore ._. (should've done so though :P)

all in all, komikon, even with just a 50 pesos entrance fee, was to my total and complete satisfaction :>


shy's 18th :>

(i know it's a bit late to do a blog about this but oh well~)

i got invited to shy's debut -- and oh lord was it fun~

saw many people who i didn't get to see for WEEKS (how more if it's lorraine's~ hmmmm) and it's was in Dad's so: EAT ALL YOU CAN <3

we had to change seats for 3 times ._. until we got back to out original chair which was like 'whut? dito lang rin tayo bagasak? HUH' but no worries~ we had to sit with a couple we didn't know, but it's all right (basically, they didn't mind that we were too damn noisy for out own good)

what really was amazing was that shy herself had to change costume 4 times ._. and everytime it's just 'woah shy~ ganda ng damit mo!!!' and even her hairstyle changed with each and every one ;) -- i don't know how they did it so quikly buuut~ i think it's magic :P

happy birthday shy!

daily project: donate the books

i remember way back then when my mom and i actually hauled upstairs the basket of books that my brother and i didn't need any longer. that was at least a year back, and i was only now that i was able to actually donate them and see them off. 

well, for one, it was only recently that i discovered that we actually HAD a library near us.So okay, maybe it wasn't THAT near since we had to ride the tricycle to go there, but it's near enough. 

anyway, a few days back, i asked the manong guard if they accepted donated books, and he said yes, they did. that was saturday then, and they were kind of closed. so come today, i dragged all of those books down there and dropped them off. 

really, all you had to do was read their policy and sign the waver. that was it :) you guys might want to give it a try too -- that is, if you do have books to donate :P

The Greater Project 4 Public Library is always pleased to receive book donations from various donors and supporters. Donation of books had helped augmenting the collection development. The books and other materials are accepted with the understanding that they may be retained, discarded and used at the discretion of the library.  The Library is sincerely grateful for the generosity of individuals wishing to donate materials; however, experience has taught us that the following guidelines are necessary:
    1. Donations will be added to the collection only after the items have been evaluated to determine if they meet the collection development requirements.
    2. Selected books can now be processed and will be distributed to main or to other QCPL branches.
    3. If the material determine to be inappropriate for the collection, the Library reserves the right to dispose material to its best advantage.
    4. Such disposition may include : 
      donation to other libraries
      donation to local or other institutions or organizations
    5. The library is not obligated to keep donated materials for any length of time.
basically, that's our library here. you can go search the net if you want to look for the library nearest you :D 

this summer~

well, basically, it's not like i didn't have any plans at all this summer. sure enough, i've already accomplished SOME of them :P it's just that i haven't been able to update this little space of mine because at night...

a. i feel damn ass lazy to
b. i feel like i'm THAT tired (but i stay online at least until 12)
c. i don't feel like opening my blog at all
d. the yaoi manga's calling me -- it's beckoning me and i cannot resist :P

that pretty much sums up a thousand and one excuses i could actually list down here to make you guys believe me :P

anyway, as for now, i'll write down all the things i planned and will do this summer: because this IS the summer to do stupid things :P

1. earn loads of muneh -- currently in progress! yey!
and under this would be:
a. get 5 blurbs finished per week done
b. get 5 articles per month done
c. wake up early every morning (this one is really a drag >>)
d. finish current project under (secret)

2. buy loads of outfits for college
--this has actually been done several times now, all with chie of course :) because it's awesome to look for sales with somebody you know who won't freak out when you do.

3.clean the computer room and make it study-able enough
--somewhat in the process. i can't seem to find the heart to actually throw away a few precious artifacts i found... but they really have to go >>

4. get started on actually finishing the freshman kit they gave me in ateneo a few weeks back
--i REALLY should get started working on this... it's not like i don't care, but seeing a doctor to test me out doesn't look really appealing (because i hate waiting and going to a doctor actually spells WAITING with a capital W)

5. have a good time at the yaoi con
--do i need to explain this?

6. practice the 'green' lifestyle
--green as in environmental. i've been always trying to do something about it, and now i actually can :P

7. go on a diet... or at least lose a couple of pounds
--because i want to.

8. make notebooks
-- because i don't want lined notebooks anymore plz :<

--because elections really IS just around the corner:D

and lastly

10. enjoy this summer
-- this might be my last, after all.

i haven't thought about any projects for now, but i've accomplished some already but i just haven't actually written it down or had any pictures taken. don't worry, i'll try my best :) i want to document every special little thing i've done anyway :)
